  1. I bought this YDS computer and program a couple of years ago from ebay and never had occasion to use it. It's the 1.33 version and the program is already loaded on the hard drive and it comes with power supply and connector to the computer's USB port as well as a backup disc with the program on it. I paid $150 and since I sold my boat and Yamaha motor have no need for it. The price is a firm 110. and it's for pickup in south Tampa. Thank you.
  2. I sold my Pathfinder and HPDI so am selling these 8 gallons of 2 stroke oil. They are all unopened/sealed and as new off the shelf. Walmart is selling them for &16 per gallon plus tax and I'm selling these for a firm price of $100 so it's quite a savings. Pickup in south Tampa only. Thank you.

    Pathfinder 2200v 2001 - exceptional condition

    Thanks Brad~ I miss it already but knew I would. The new owners are very happy and have taken the boat out twice in two days and lovin' it!
  4. I'm the 2nd owner, having owned this boat for 11 years. It has been thoroughly maintained both mechanically and cosmetically. It has about 600 hours on the Yamaha 200HPDI 2.6l engine and the motor has been flushed after each outing. It runs great and pushes the boat to 50-52mph at WOT. UPGRADES include recovered cushions by Shumakes in Tampa in 2016, Motorguide Xi5 trolling motor w/remote, Bob's Action Jack Plate in 2012, a Garmin 70s touch screen GPS/finder, a new SEI gearcase (still in warranty) and the custom T-top manufactured and installed in 2016 and it has a Sunbrella top. New bilge pump and new fuel line in 2018. The boat has Lenco trim tabs, a swim ladder, Uniden VHF radio and Igloo coolers front and back. There are 3 Optima agm batteries in the console. The trailer is a Performance and I invested 700.00 at Rolls Trailer in Plant City a few years ago to have it reworked with a new axel and their lifetime warrantied compression springs. all for easy launch and retreival. The tires are Maxxis with less than 1k miles. Everything on the boat works properly. The title is free and clear and I have most of the latest invoices for maintenance performed. Inspection, marine mechanics, surveyors are welcome. I'm in Tampa. If interested please PM me or email me at tonynoriega46@gmail.com Thank you. 22,500

    Opinion on the v max HDPI

    Because it performs flawlessly time after time after time. The motor has never stranded me. It pushes the 2200v like it was meant to be hanging on that transom. Also, because I do (and have done) all of the routine maintenance myself on this complex machine, the mechanical engineering is the best I've ever encountered. Thanks for your question.

    Opinion on the v max HDPI

    I've been operating boats since 1962 (yeah....I know I'm ancient!) and have owned many boats and motors. At 11 years in to ownership of the 200 HPDI 2.6 I can say without reservation that it's the best motor I've ever run. As others have said, it's paramount that maintenance be done on the motor -- especially the filters.

    T-Top color for Ice Blue Pathfinder

    The reason I went with black ( on my seafoam green PF22) is that sunlight is reflected off the boat's deck and upward to the underside of the T-top, and if that's a light color, the light is reflected back down. In addition, in many years of boating I found it's really not cooler under a light colored T-top.

    Checking in on our Florida Members

    Tampa did well by most accounts. We're in south Tampa where there is always the fear that the Bayshore is going to flood during periods of heavy rains but it didn't, and the coolest thing was driving down Bayshore in advance of the storm and seeing mud bottom for a few hundred yards....the wind blew the water out that much! Of course there are many without power. TECO reported yesterday that 2 of 3 homes were powerless but some are back on line today. Publix was open this morning and there was plenty of food to be had, including perishables, but the shelves were at about half capacity. I haven't toured the waterfronts so perhaps someone else in Tampa Bay can let us know how the boats did. Thanks to all for your concern.

    Cheap and easy under leaning post tackle storage-update

    Cool! Where can those holders be bought? Looks like they are purpose built to specifically fit the plano boxes?
